Conference | Sounding Habsburg: Sonic Circulations in Central Europe


A two-day conference that explores the sonic and musical cultures of Habsburg Central Europe, with a focus on transnational circulations, exchanges, and ruptures. Consisting of present-day Austria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and parts of Poland, Ukraine, Romania, Croatia, and Italy, Habsburg Central Europe has been described as "a 'laboratory' for the pluricultural experience." The conference examines the sonic and musical entanglements within Habsburg Central Europe and reveals the ways in which the aural can highlight unexpected contestations of citizenship, belonging, and affiliation. An inescapable presence in Europe from the late 16th through the early 20th century, the legacy of the Habsburg monarchy continues to resonate into the present day.

Conference | Contradictions in Capitalism: Feminist Perspectives


How do sites of exploitation and expropriation turn into sites of resistance and collective struggle? How does the refusal of waged and unwaged work destabilize gender and race hierarchies? What reservoirs for solidarity do we have — beyond assuming shared interests of various groups targeted by oppression? Under which conditions can struggles for life-sustainability become anti-capitalist? In which ways has the grass-root mobilization centering self-determination with regard to reproductive rights been internationalized, and what role does care play in building need-centered economies? This conference will discuss theoretical questions and current political struggles within the broad spectrum of Marxist feminisms.
